After swearing off football during college (a combination of marching band overload and a horrible college team) I have finally found the fun again. Even though I watched the spanking of UNT by Texas last Saturday (thanks for the pay-per-view Brad), this week marks the beginning of the football season in so much as my participation.
For the last two years I’ve been part of a friends and family pool for NFL games. Less time consuming than fantasy football but just as much fun. Of course it has as much to do with the company and “friendly” competition as it does the game, but I’ve followed the NFL much closer since I started playing in our pool.
My picks for the week are in and I’m waiting for the kickoff. Are you ready for some football?
